To quote Q-Tip‘s industry rule #4080, “Record company people are shhhaddddyyyy!” With the help of freestyle master Cassidy, Iron Solomon sets out to spread the word about the industry on his latest single, Rule #4081. Solomon co-produces the record with Isaiah to showcase not only his lyrical talent, but also his work on the keys. With the help of his Philadelphia collaborator, who rattles off a laundry list of hip-hop stereotypes on the chorus as well as delivering a guest verse on the back end, Iron schools listeners on the marketing strategies that labels use to make money, stating that industry heads don’t care whether the music is whack or not. Although Iron does spit a couple of exaggerated lines, the majority of his claims are accurate. In fact, Solomon’s rhymes serve as a nice little guide for up-and-coming artists who are trying to break into the industry. The collaborators’ styles complement each other nicely, and the result is a strong Booth debut. Keep it locked for the latest on Solomon’s Monster LP, which has yet to receive a release date.
